We begin today traversing into the Trials Of Osiris. This 3v3 no respawn intensive game type will require teamwork at its finest, communication and the best gear you have available to you. Like Iron Banner “power matters”. We saw footage from the team of Kevin Yanes, Triplewreck and Greg Requa where they took us through the Trials and took no prisoners in the process. Reviving team mates is key here as it is first to 5 rounds wins, games will only last 2 minutes so you will need to make every shot count! In the occasion that a round goes to sudden death it will be settled by a flag spawn, if it is not captured by time out then the closest living player will win the match for their team. Only one map will be playable every week to keep things familiar and give you a chance to come up with more new and elaborate tactics, games will be matched up with other players with a strong connection. Bring a fireteam guardian. you’ll need your best!
Passage coins will be available for purchase, Mercy of Osiris, which will forgive your first loss in the trials. Boon of Osiris, which will make your first win count as 2! and Favor of Osiris, where you will start with one win. Every win will get you one step closer to a new packet, gun or piece of gear. We do not know what is inside these packets just yet but have been assured that they will contain good stuff! The cap is 8 wins in one run and the trials will stop when you either hit the win cap, hit the lose cap of 3 (rage quiting counts as a loss) or the tournament ends on its reset date. But do not worry, entry to the Trials is only 100 glimmer from Brother Vance and you can keep entering until you get the gear you deserve within the tournament period of Friday-Tuesday. Once you do make it past all 8 Trials all previous rewards are available for purchase too! Be on the look out for unique random drops after matches too, Legendary gear inbound.
I think House of Wolves is shaping up nicely, new gear, new guns, new level caps and a weekly PvP end event that is forever changing so you will never have the same game twice. I can not wait till the 19th! LET’S GO!
Stay tuned next Wednesday for the final stream to bring us the Prison of Elders!
House of Wolves is out 19th May while Trials Of Osiris will debut on 22nd.
